Chiropractic Care During Pregnancy
Chiropractic care can play an important role during pregnancy. Potential benefits of our chiropractic care during pregnancy include:
- Maximizing health during pregnancy
- Controlling symptoms of nausea
- Reducing the length of labor and delivery
- Relieving neck, back and joint pain
- Prevention of potential cesarean section.
The International Chiropractic Pediatric Association recommends that women receive chiropractic care throughout pregnancy to establish pelvic balance and optimize the room a baby has for development throughout the pregnancy.
With a balanced pelvis, babies have a greater chance of moving into the correct position for birth, and the crisis and worry associated with breech and posterior presentations may be avoided altogether. Optimal baby positioning at the time of birth also eliminates the potential for dystocia (difficult labor) and therefore results in easier and safer deliveries for both the mother and baby.
Infants and Babies
Forcing, pulling and twisting a baby during birth are very common procedures and can cause subluxation in newborns. When there is interference with neurological signals, an infant’s health may be impaired from his or her first breath and problems can begin immediately or appear years later. We routinely perform examinations on infants and babies to check for subluxation. When necessary, we also perform very gentle adjustments to remove subluxation preventing optimum health.
Common ailments where chiropractic care may benefit babies include symptoms of colic, problems sleeping, constipation and difficulties with feeding. If your baby is experiencing these conditions or is overly fussy and seems uncomfortable, please contact us, we can help.
Toddlers and Youths
Toddlers and youths are constantly encountering and experiencing situations where they may incur subluxation. As a toddler learns how to walk and gain their coordination, they are routinely falling, fumbling and placing stress on their body. As a toddler matures into a youth, their activities become even more intense and so do the dangers. We all have seen children who think they could fly!
Regular chiropractic check-ups are an important part of the preventive care needed in these high developmental years. We regularly treat children and help parents teach children about the benefits of exercise, nutrition, health and removing subluxation through chiropractic care.
The education, treatment and guidance provided prepare these children for a life of true wellness.
